BODHI
(7/15/15)


we look
for our
place

we wait
for our
moment

a precise
scenario
in which life's
meaning
will be
presented
to us

we know
that the circumstances
cannot
be predicted

they will
happen
when they
happen

we must
simply
be prepared
for them

we must
work
to consistently
block
the distractions
of civilization

the distractions
of society

all
of those bureaucracies
created
to free us
from worry
for our basic
needs

all
of those contrived
complexities
that block us
from our elemental
natures

from our cosmic
connections
that tell us
that we belong

that
all
is well

we walk

we sit

we stress

we relax

attempting
to remain
aware

that any
activity

any
inactivity

may be
the parting
of our personal
clouds

allowing
just a bit
of sunlight
to descend
upon us

at least
once
before
we die
